I know a land where streets are paved 

With things we meant to achieve; 

It is walled with the money we meant to have saved, 

And the pleasures for which we grieve. 

The kind word spoken, the promise broken, 
And many a coveted boon 
Are stowed away in that land somewhere, 
The land of Pretty Soon. 

There are ancient jewels of possible fame 
Lying about in the dust, 
And many a lofty aim 
Covered with mold and rust. 

And oh, the place, while it seems so near, 
Is farther away than the moon. 
Though our purpose is fair, we ne'er get there, 
To the land of Pretty Soon. 

It is farther at noon than it is at dawn, 
Farther at night than at noon. 
Oh, let us beware of that land down there 
The land of Pretty Soon,

Faculty Advisor — Miss Mary Anderson. 

Editor in-Chief — Hele n a M u n son .

Assistant Editors- -Helen McGhee, Elaine Bujirman. 

Business Manager— -Audrey Berryman.

Did you notice on the 'Take One, It's Your College 
Paper/' that the '-'your" was underlined? The Greet- 
ing this year is to be your college paper in the fullest 
sense, for it will be what you make it. Contributions are 
solicited from the students as the heading on the first page 
says, but above all voluntary contributions are asked for. 
It is impossible for the few on the staff to know of the 
possible hidden talent among the student body. The 
editor cannot depend on the English department for its 
short-stories because then the paper becomes an organ of 
that department, which must be avoided in order to make 
the paper truly yours. 

Article I., section 2, of the constitution reads: "The 
purpose of this publication shall be to record college 
events, to assist the alumnae in keeping in touch with the 
college, to publish the best literary effort of the student 
body, to serve as an effective organ for college activities, 
to express the atmosphere and spirit of the college, and to 
serve the best interests of the college in all ways." Em- 
phasis is put upon two phrases of the purpose in the policy 
of the greetings for this year. 

Page Three 

Wbt College Greeting* 

An alumnae editor has been appointed by an amend- 
ment to the constitution, and an effort is going to be made 
to make this department worth while and in truth keep 
the alumnae in touch with the college. 

Heretofore, the Greetings has been a paper to be proud 
of in the way in which it expressed the spirit of the school. 
Our purpose for this coming year is one measure broader, 
for should we not reach out for something better in build- 
ing on past experience? We have tried to make a begin- 
ning in the first issue. This number has been planned 
with the idea in view to help each girl find her place in 
college activites so that she wll catch "It" at the beginning 
of the year rather than at the end. Not only to express, 
but to help create college spirit, is the foremost thought of 
the new staff. 

This throws wide open the door of opportunity for 
boosting to every organization or activity of the school. 
Don't wait to be asked for material on a past occurrence, 
give us voluntary contribution on coming events and by 
so doing help the Greetings, your project, and the college. 

Whatever your literary ability may be, story telling, 
essay writing, rhymes, or well told jokes, develop it by 
writing for the Greetings. Such material must be written 
on regular copy paper which may be secured at the office. 
Write across the length of the sheet in a clear distinct hand, 
spacing words and lines well, and drop it into the Greet- 
ing's box, which always smiles its thanks to you even 
though you may not be able to understand its expression. 
Let me whisper a secret to you: Giving of your best 
freely, puts you in line for an office on coming staffs. 



Mabel came swiftly down the hall in answer to her 
dearest friends beckoning finger. 

"Well Rachel, what exciting and really new secret 
have you to tell me now? " 

age Four. 

Zf)t College (greetings; 

"Oh, nothing of the kind, this time; but I do wish 
you would hold this chair on my bed while I put up this 
lovely picture that I bought at the ten cent store. That 
perfectly new roommate of mine has gone for the fifth or 
sixth time to interview the dean, and left me, here on the 
sinking sands of these bed springs, to hang up the decora- 

Mabel obediently held the chair in place while her 
tongue flew at a rapid gait. 

"I see you brought a chafing dish back with you this 
time, Rachel." 

"Well, it's really not mine. It's Mary's, my room- 
mate's, you know. Why? ' 

"Oh, I was just thinking. I have a stand in my room 
that would hold that chafing dish easily and if you could 
persuade Mary to bring it, we could have a party and some 
fudge in my room tonight. 

Rachel enthusiastically accepted the invitation. 
"Don't you worry. I'll be there with the chafing dish, and 
bring Mary along too. She is the only one who under- 
stands how to run the article. It's different from most 
chafing dishes. Mary said she brought it against the 
wishes of her whole household." 

At eight o'clock that evening, Rachel, bearing the chaf- 
ing dish, joined the crowd of girls in Mabel's room. 

"Mary couldn't come," she explained. "She had a 
date, but I can manage the lamp now, I think. It's all 
ready for action as soon as the stuff for fudge is put in." 

Rachel had just started the lamp when the arrival of 
another girl drew all attention to the opposite side of the 
room, but instead of the merry greeting the crowd had ex- 
pected, they were met by a cry of horror. "Girls! The 
chafing dish! Put it out quick!" 

The whole room seemed ablaze. Rivulets of fire ran 
along the floor, upon the table, up and down the curtains. 
Mabel frantically seized the water pitcher but it was 
empty. The others stood motionless dazed by the danger. 

Page Five

A vision of her school burned to the ground flashed 
through Rachel's mind and then, seizing a large felt 
cushion, she tried to beat out the fire, but the flames stub- 
bornly ate their way across the floor. 

"Oh girls, help me, help me!" pleaded Rachel. 
The girls seemed to recover self possession with one 
accord. Some rushed for the fire extinguisher, others 
grabbed cushions to help smother the fire. In a short 
time only charred curtains and woodwork, and hopelessly 
discolored cushions remained to tell the tale of a fire, but 
it was a subdued bunch of girls that left Mabel's room a 
few minutes later. 

May Blackburn, '16. 




"O, hum! I hope some one answers that telephone. 
I'm too sleepy to get up," thought Judith as an electric 
bell wakened her. 

Dang, dang, dang, dang! 

"Oh, what is the matter? All sorts of bells seem to 
persist in waking me up this morning. It must be late, 
though, for that was the vegetable man and he never 
comes till at least nine-thirty." 

Judith drowsily opened her eyes, but with a start 
glanced about the room. 

"Mary, Mary," she cried, hopping out of bed and run- 
ning over to her roommate. "Mary, get up. Don't you 
know this is the first morning of college? That must 
have been that weird sounding bell that somebody told me 
>uld come clanging down the corridors at a very early 
hour. Oh, my, it is six-thirty and we have only half an 
hour to get dressed for breakfast. Why, I never have 

sed in half an hour Where are my shoes? I can't 
find a thing. Now I have my shoes buttoned up wrong." 

"Well, if you would talk less and quit jumping around 

Page Six 

fcfje College Greeting* 

the middle of the floor, perhaps you might be able to get 
dressed," said her calm sophomore roommate. 

"Now, just look, there isn't a drop of water in this 
pitcher. I suppose I'll have to go get some. I was scared 
to go after it last night for fear I would be doing something 
wrong. Oh goodness, it is ten minutes till seven and my 
hair isn't even combed. You are all dressed, aren't you? 
Please get into my trunk and get out that blue dress. No, 
not that one, the other one. There goes that five minute 
bell — we have to start down now, don't we? Well, I 
suppose I am ready. Oh, my goodness, no, I haven't a 
belt on. I wonder where it is. I know I am going to be 
the last one in the dining room. I don't see why you can't 
help me instead of standing there laughing." 

But Mary could not resist. It was too funny. Had 
she acted that way her first morning at college? 

Genevieve Dague, '17. 


For years some sort of a fluid had been corked up, put 
in cases and stowed away within the walls of I. W. C. 
This was known only to those living inside. Outsiders 
were practically unaware of "Its" existence. We heard 
much about this fluid and "Its" power for good, so much, 
in fact, that we became blinded to "Its" faults. It is true 
that "It" hovered in our atmosphere binding us together 
as college students and strengthening our ties to our Alma 
Mater. But in no less manner is it true that "It" worked 
in opposite directions. "It" tended to make us self-cen- 
tered and self-satisfied. 

One morning large signs greeted the girls on the way 
to the dining room. These cards read, "Have You Got 
it'?" "Got What?" "Well, Get it'" and "You've 
Got it', Now Keep it'." But still "It" wasn't revealed. 
A few days later when the girls went to chapel they noticed 
that they had visitors. An old man, a pump and a bucket 

Page Seven 

flfyt College Greeting* 

full of "It" stood on the platform. The girls caught the 
spirit intended and brought out case after case. The bot- 
tles popped and bursted, unable to withstand the pressure 
of the mysterious atmosphere. From these bottles, in all 
radiance and splendor, poured forth that which had been 
stowed away so long, "Ginger Pep," or College Spirit. 

And so now we are reaching out and grasping larger 
ideas and by so doing we are showing our true devotion to 
the Illinois Woman's College. 

Mary Harrison, '17. 


Are you acquainted with the girl who is always look- 
ing down her nose through the big end of the telescope? 
If she is your bosom friend, watch yourself, for what she 
sees through that end of the instrument is so small and far 
away that it doesn't seem worth while to her. Try to 
induce her to reverse the instrument and enlarge her 
vision. We have a big proposition on our hands this fall. 
It will take us all to handle it. Coming back from vaca- 
tions spent in various parts of the country, we should have 
our lungs so full of fresh air and our minds so filled with 
good things that we will not seem like the same student 
body that worked together last spring. What did you do 
with your vacation, Freshman; or you, Sophomore, and 
you, upper classmen? No matter where you have been, 
you have been storing up energy and happiness, for you 
couldn't possibly use all that comes to you with vacation. 
Please do not pattern after the too careful woman who 
puts away a pair of gloves to save and saves them so long 
that when she does bring them forth to wear at some 
funeral they fall to pieces in putting them on. Use your 
energy now, don't stack it up in a corner and expect to get 
it out on occasion. It's for no funeral that we want your 
enthusiasm and aid now.

The installation of self-government in the College has 
been a big step forward. We shouldn't think of wearing 
clothes of five years ago if we could possibly afford things 
up to date. It takes away self-respect to be shabby or 
dowdy. E. W. Flynn, the famous Chautauqua health lec- 
turer, believes in everyone wearing the best clothes he can 
afford. His advice to a young man is to keep his suit 
pressed if he has to put it under the mattress and to keep 
his shoes shined if he has to spit on them. 

Student Government isn't a fad, but an advance, a 
development that is a sign of progress. In nearly every 
college of rank the student body has asked for it, and with 
the strides we are making as a growing influential college, 
we are very desirous of seeing it here. 

We as a student body have worked together on other 
occasions and for other purposes, so we are assured that 
a few of us will not have to stand on the highways with 
a megaphone and boost for a Student Association. If you 
stop to think that a Student Association means practical, 
actual independence of action and thinking, toward 
strengthening of character for women, does it not seem 
worth while to you to make a sacrifice or two and help 
make history in this College? 

How do you like our first booklet? Are you going to 
regard it as a nuisance of don'ts or a really aid? It is a 
beginning, at least, and is tangible evidence of our success 
so far. Above all, let us be sane and natural, and for one 
thing, remember that proctors are just as full of red blood 
corpuscles and vacation effervescence as we are, and aren't 
guaranteed paper patterns by which we are to mark our 
courses. They are simply good souls who are anxious 
to put their best into all student affairs for Alma Mater. 
You old girls know what is expected of you. The new 
students consciously and unconsciously do as you do. Be 
glad of the chance to prove that you have 'it" by being 
square, and do it cheerfully. We have no time or place for 
the person with a crust here. Smile and lend a hand. We

shall soon have an organization of the whole student body 
of which we as individuals and a college will be proud. 

Feril Hess, 45. 


To squeeze into a brief article at the head of the Asso- 
ciation notes, anything more than a suggestion of the 
breadth and the wealth of the opportunity for self expres- 
sion offered by the Student's Christian Association is not 
what is attempted here. You have seen the Association 
girls meeting trains and dispensing information on those 
first bewildering days of school. You have accepted their 
hospitality at the welcoming party, have sung with them 
and felt their friendliness. E're now, no doubt, you have 
some inkling of the deeper significance of this large affilia- 
tion of students that bears proudly the name of a Christian 
organization. Now that you have yourselves become part 
jot the Association, you will want to know how best you 
may actively express the enthusiasm for it which is so 
dominant an element in all of its members. We hope to 
give every girl in College something to do. The policy 
for the Association for 1914-15 is: 

1. To deepen the spiritual life of the entire Associa- 

2. To keep the membership closely in touch with the 
world's student movement; to avoid provincialism. 

3. To co-poerate with the churches of Jacksonville 
through student Bible classes. 

4. To extend Social Service work. 

5. To increase systematic and intelligent giving. 

6. To make the devotional meetings express the life 
and activity of the Association; to increase their interest, 
sincerity, helpfulness. 

Any plan or suggestion which presents itself or that 
you can make to the cabinet which will further that policy, 
we will be eager to adopt.

When you have heard more of the magnitude of this 
world's student federation, you will glory in the bigness of 
it. There is something invigorating and inspiring to know 
that while you are working here at the Woman's College 
under a common purpose and toward a common end, that 
there are young women in forty different nations who are 
taking the same pledge, exalting the same purpose, and 
following the same Christ as you. It is impossible to be 
provincial and narrow and at the same time be an intelli- 
gent member of the Y. W. C. A. And to be an intelligent 
member, read the Association Monthly, attend the weekly 
meetings, be an enthusiastic member of a mission study 
class, and serve eagerly and efficiently on whatever com- 
mittee you may be appointed for. Girls, in your busy- 
ness with your other College activities, do not forget that 
you ov/e it to that ideal for yourself which you are striv- 
ing to fulfill to make your relation to this most vital of 
college organizations not simply that of a passive member, 
but of an active enthusiast who knows the charm and the 
urgency of her cause. 

Ruth Want, M6> 


The Athletic Association is one of the 
three organizations that is open to every 
member of both the College and Acad- 
emy. It is not only open to member- 
ship, but it is desirous that every girl 
here cast in her lot for it for big things. 

Dr. Harker and the Faculty have 
made dear old I. W. C. standard in lit- 
erary and special lines. Are we girls 
going to make it standard in athletics? 
Are we going into athletics whole- 
heartedly for ourselves, for our classes, 
for our College? 

Page Eleven 

Zi)t College Greetings; 

Heretofore there has been plenty of individual interest 
shown in our Association, so much that almost every girl 
here became a member. But it was unorganized interest 
with no big incentive to draw it out. Each girl enlisted 
in some game, perhaps because she liked it but more likely 
because she had to. 

The biggest thing in athletics , the thing that draws 
the whole College into it, is class competition. Why is 
the Essay Contest the jolliest , best time of all the year? 
Because two classes put up their best and support that best 
with all the enthusiastic loyalty they possess. Multiply 
that two by five and watch athletics boom! 

Why not form class basket-ball teams, base-ball teams, 
hockey, and captain-ball teams; play for class champion- 
ship; then defend the championship from all other chal- 
lenges. In all probability each class will be large enough 
to have a team contesting in every department of athletics. 

For those interested in the less violent sports, archery 
teams could be organized. Tennis is ever present, with 
a silver loving-cup as a trophy for the most skillful. 

Besides the games for fall and spring, basket-ball and 
captain-ball last all winter. With classes battling for the 
championship in these games, the whole College behind 
them to push and cheer, we would have the gayest winter 
old I. W. C. has ever known. 

These sports are not the only kind of athletics there is, 
or the only kind that we wish to emphasize. Perhaps you 
know picnics, tramps, hare-and-hound chases, etc., belong 
to this organization. 

Do yob know that a big half of you girls waste your 
Mondays? True, you clean your rooms and go down 
town. That should hardly account for whole days when 
they are as beautiful as these fall ones are and the spring 
ones will be. Clean on Saturdays and have your Mon- 
days free, joyous days of your own. Get a jolly congen- 
ial bunch together; go for a tramp or a picnic; go to 
Nichols park for breakfast and a morning row. Or, if 

Page Twelve 

My Wbe College Greeting* 100 

you wish, bring your class into that also. Take your sis- 
ter class on a picnic. Challenge a non-sister class to a 
hare-and-hound chase and end up with a picnic dinner to- 
gether. You will find it a great deal more fun than spend- 
ing the same amount of money at Peacock Inn. Mondays 
will then mean a big holiday to you. 

Girls, let's work for our classes, and endeavor to make 
them the best in the College in every way. For where 
there is the liveliest class spirit there you will find the big- 
gest and best college spirit. Let's go in shoulder to shoul- 
der to make 191 4-1 5 a really big and wonderful year in 

Esther Fowler, '17. 


The essay contest which usually has come toward the 
end of the year, it is hoped will be given before Christmas 
vacation this year. This is one of the things that we are 
all interested in and a time when the most class spirit is 
shown. If the girls who are thinking of entering would 
begin to think seriously about it now, they would not be 
so rushed when the semester is half over. We are look- 
ing for some of the best essays this year v/e have ever had 
and we hope many will enter it so it will be bubbling over 
with enthusiasm, pep, and class spirit. 


As the new student faces the realization of all her 
dreams and enters for the first time the college halls, she 
expects to enjoy all the advantages of the College and re- 
ceive its benefits. Of these benefits there is one which 
is a most vital part of college, and which she cannot 
fail to see all around her and without which she will be out 
of touch and sympathy with the girls she meets. It is 
Class Spirit. Just as enthusiasm gives the otherwise dry 

Page Thirteen 

yj <*!>* College (greeting* |jj 

and uninteresting subject or occupation a new meaning, 
so class spirit gives new energy and vigor to college life. 

When class spirit really takes hold of the student, lazi- 
ness and indifference have no place in her character; but 
with no thought of self, she is eager to fit into her notch, 
making the machinery move forward without friction. 
No longer is she a round peg in a square hole, but is anxious 
to put all her energies into service. She thus will get that 
broader vision that college life is what she makes it. 

"Every great and commanding movement in the an- 
nals of the world," says Emerson, "is the triumph of some 
enthusiasm." Does not class spirit have just such a rec- 
ord in college activities? 

Indifference never leads armies that conquer, never 
models statues that live, or breathes sublime music, or 
moves the soul with poetry or the world with heroic ser- 
vice. Enthusiasm of the hand, as Charles Bell says, 
wrought the statue of Memnon and hung the brazen gates 
of Thebes. It opened the tubes of the telescope for Gali- 
leo so that he saw worlds and their systems. It caused 
Columbus, undaunted by doubting and ridicule, to make 
the path from the old world to the new. 

Class Spirit is just as indomitable and by increasing 
strong feeling and loyalty trains for the larger, broader 
spirit, our love and devotion to our Alma Mater. 

Marie Miller, M6. 


Some girls are especially interested in one certain or- 
ganization of the school, others in another. Perhaps 
Sally racks her brains and blisters her feet (treasurer, you 
know) for her class, and Molly suffers from aching mus- 
cles so that her learn may win that basket-ball game, while 
Betty worries deep wrinkles into her face in deciding what 
the proctor board should do to a rule-breaker; yet, uniting 

Page Fourteen

®be College Greeting* [ULJ 

all the girls in the various branches of student activity is 
College Spirit. 

This wonderful kind of enthusiasm teaches Sally, Molly 
and Betty that class, society, athletics, or the Christian 
Association is not the chief among student organizations 
and activities but that it is only a part of the whole dear 
college which they call their own. Through this binding 
influence each girl learns that her efforts in one direction 
are more deeply concerned in .the advancement of the 
school than in the fraction in which she needs must center 
her interest. A few years ago, how lucky we thought our- 
selves if we happened to be in a high school which had 
plenty of spirit. To us the school was the "best ever" 
and not a flaw could we see in it. College spirit is bigger 
and broader than our old high school spirit. The same 
old pride and love are there as strong as ever, but now we 
try to see how we can help to improve the old order es- 
tablished by other students who have gone before. Col- 
lege spirit makes the student realize that the college exists 
for her and, as she gladly takes what it offers, this same 
spirit teaches her to express her gratitude in loyalty a,nd 
work. On the other hand, as each girl finds some work 
that she may do and does it gladly, she catches this wonder- 
ful enthusiasm called college spirit which makes her col- 
lege life mean far more to her. Find your work, girls, 
now in the beginning, catch the spirit and make this your 
college not only in name but in fact. Helen McGhee, '16. 



At the Greetings Breakfast held last May two amend- 
ments to the Constitution were made and which were 
crowded out of the June number, 


The Associate Editor shall act as Alumnae Editor and 
keep in personal touch with all the alumnae associations 
of the College. 

Page Fifteen 

W$t College (greetings; 

The Greetings shall have an Auditing Committee 
which shall consist of the Faculty Advisor, the Registrar 
and one College student chosen by the Faculty Advisor 
and the Registrar from the student body; the student 
chosen shall not be a member of the staff. This commit- 
tee shall certify to the correctness of the Business Mana- 
ger's report and affix their signatures to the final report 
given in the May number of the Greetings. 


It was almost as much fun as coming back to school 
when we seven, who were fortunate enough to be going 
to Lake Geneva, met in Chicago. Then when we found 
Dr. Marker waiting for us in the Northwestern station, it 
was indeed a glad reunion. 

That was only the beginning of our good times. From 
the time we left the train at Williams Bay and took the 
boat across the lake to the Y. W. C. A. camp until the 
t : me we took our last ride back to take the train home 
we felt that every minute had been "worth while." 

The Association camp is located on the hillside over- 
looking Lake Geneva, and from the tents nestled up among 
the trees the view out over the lake is beautiful. 

The day began when we met in the dining room for 
breakfast and sang "Holy, Holy, Holy." Our mornings 

e filled with class-work — good, live classes of enthus- 
iastic girls — conducted by fine, strong men and women. 
We had two lectures every day, one in the morning and the 
other in the evening. 

In the afternoons we were free to do as we pleased. 

n found that we did not have nearly enough time 

to vis ; t all of the interesting places we wished to see. We 

visited the Yerkes Observatory, took a boat trip around the 

Many beautiful summer places and spent other 

afternoons swimming, playing tennis, and walking. Who 


Cfje College Greeting* 

of us will soon forget the time Dr. Harker took us sailing, 
our trip around the lake when it was so rough v/e could 
not go across and our long climb in search of the high 
tower, or the beautiful moonlight nights when we sat out 
on the pier and sang. 

It is hard to describe the charm of Geneva, but all 
who go there feel it and come away with ideals a little 
higher, full of enthusiasm and inspiration. Our only re- 
gret was that all of the girls could not have been there to 
share it with us. 


"Will all that live within fifty miles of Tuscola, 111., 
please sign here? " 

So read a notice on the bulletin board last May. The 
result was a genuine I. W. C. picnic at Patterson Springs, 
five miles from Tuscola, on Wednesday, Aug. 5. The 
home of Letta Irwin, '14, was the headquarters from 
whence proceeded a carriage to the various stations from 
6:30 a. m. to 12:40 p. m., when the last of the girls ar- 
rived. We drove out to the springs in a hack, v/here we 
were met by an auto-load from Oakland, making a crowd 
of fifteen in all (not including the drivers). The dinner 
was the really-truly picnic kind, which is all that need be 
said about it, and afterwards there was rowing on the river. 

After so good a beginning every one was eager to 
make the picnic an annual affair. Next year we hope to 
plan on a larger scale. We shall not limit ourselves to a 
fifty-mile radius, and anyone who has ever attended I. W. 
C. will be welcome. The date will probably remain the 
same, the first Wednesday in August. We shall try to 
invite everyone who lives reasonably near, but if anyone 
is overlooked we hope she will write to Tuscola and be 
included in the plans. Decide now to save a day for the 
Tuscola picnic next summer.

The charter members of the Eastern Illinois, Illinois 
Woman's College Annual Picnic Society, as someone 
named us, were: Miss Mary Anderson, Macon; Gladys 
Henson, Villa Grove; Ola Wendel, Newman; Hope Hal- 
berstadt, Tolono; Ruth Mattocks, Anne and Lyone 
Schafer, Oakland; Edna and Mabel Larson, Paxton; Cecil 
Allen, Broadlands; Rachel Morris, Allerton; Helen Paw- 
son, Sidell; Corinne Hughes, Waverly; Letta and Irene 
Irwin, Tuscola. 

Letta Irwin, '14. 


During the summer a room on the ground floor of the 
main building, formerly used for storage purposes, was 
transformed into a cheerful, cozy rest-room for the town 
girls. Such a room has long been needed, but owing to 
limited space has been impossible before. 

The town girls are indeed most grateful for this com- 
fortably furnished room, which has broad, sunny windows 
(in which ferns and geraniums will flourish later) looking 
out onto the middle court and campus. Different ones of 
the girls are bringing curtains, pillows, table covers, and 
pictures to complete the attractiveness of their "I. W. C. 
home." The resident girls and faculty will be welcome 
at any time. 

Every town girl is urged to this room. It is in a con- 
venient place as it is near both the cloak lobby and gym- 
nasium. It is to be used as a dressing room as well as a 
rest room. Those who are obliged to bring their lunches 
will doubly appreciate its use. We hope that later this 
place of so many uses will be designated by a more at- 
tractive name than just "town girls' room." 

Helen Dinsmore, '15. 

Miss Ludwig was married to Mr. James V. Martin, 
June 11, 1914. Their home is to be in Tokyo, Japan.

LJLj <R)e College Greeting* 


We are to have an unusual privilege this year in hold- 
ing an exhibition of oil paintings by contemporary Ameri- 
can painters. 

This event will be one of the numbers of the Artists' 
Course and will be assembled from the winter exhibitions 
in the New York Academy of Design by the American Fed- 
eration of Arts. 

The Art classes are starting in a satisfactory manner — 
several students enrolling for the full Art course. 


The new director of the School of Expression is very 
happy to report an enrollment equal to that of other years 
and to note an increase as the first week advanced. Miss 
Gleckler is still happier to find such an enthusiastic and 
interested spirit among the girls in all lines of Expression. 

There has been introduced into the course this year a 
class in original Public Speaking, which the director hopes 
to make one of the strongest courses offered in the depart- 
ment. The class will study debate the first half of the 
year, from a theoretical and practical standpoint, and the 
second half will study oratory from both standpoints. In 
addition, if enough students desire it, will be offered a 
course in Parliamentary Usage, which will study the con- 
duct of all public assemblies, organizing into courts, con- 
ventions, and legislative bodies for actual practice. All 
literary society members should be interested in this class. 

The second half of Expression Two will be a Shake- 
spearean course, which will study the play chosen from 
both a literary and dramatic standpoint with a view to its 
presentation in the spring. 

Miss Gleckler and her assistant, Miss Shaw, will be 
most happy to welcome at any time interested visitors.

The Belles Lettres girls are back with lots of "ginger 
pep," hoping to help make I. W. C. the best College in 
the Middle West. An interesting and instructive course 
of study is being arranged for the year and every member 
is eager to do her part. The Society is glad to welcome 
Ruth Taylor back as a "new old" member. 


Twenty Lambda members are back in the College halls 
gradually becoming accustomed to the new quarters on 
second floor Main. Two new pictures, "The Song of the 
Lark" and "Sir Galahad" have been given to the hall by 
members of the Society. . 

The Society met as a whole for the first time at a pic- 
nic breakfast at Nichols Park September the twenty-first. 

Friends of Naomi Davis will be glad to hear that she 
has been made head of the Department of Expression in 
Cottey College, Nevada, Missouri. 


Phi Nu is well represented this year though we are 
sorry to lose Margaret Meek, our secretary, whose illness 
prevented her return. 

Erma Elliott, one of our last year's Seniors, will study 
for her Master's Degree at the University of Illinois this 
year, while Abbie Peavoy is teaching at Volga, South 
Dakota. Roma Swarthout has been doing concert work 
the past summer and will go on with it this winter. 


The third year for Theta Sigma has started with very 
promising prospects. Although only fourteen of our 
members have returned, each girl is entering into the work 

Page Twenty 

®be College Greeting* 

with so much enthusiasm that we hope we will not feel the 
lack of numbers. Our new society room, on third floor 
main building, is a great source of interest, its appearance 
having been greatly improved by several new pieces of 
furniture. On Monday morning, Sept. 2 8, the members 
of Theta Sigma enjoyed a picnic breakfast at Nichols Park, 
followed by a jolly time on the water. 

Y. W. C. A. NOTES. 

On Saturday evening, Sept. 19th, all the girls gath- 
ered in the social hall for an informal party. What a glad 
handshaking there was and how plentiful the smiles. Tiny 
favors were given the girls on which were written a wel- 
come and the names of the cabinet officers. The finding 
and putting together of favorite songs helped the girls to 
get acquainted, and the singing of the songs was a real 

Refreshments of punch and wafers were served. The 
bower was just outside the west entrance to Harker Hall 
and was a most delightful retreat. 

The program for Sunday, Sept. 20th, was led by Miss 
Want. The subject was 'The Christian Association in 
Our College." Miss Want's talk brought out very clearly 
the object and benefit of the Association, and besides ac- 
qainting the new girls with the work, drew the old girls to 
the work with greater loyalty. A few old girls spoke of 
the benefits they had derived from Y. W. C. A. The song 
so delightfully rendered by Miss Demuth was enjoyed by 



This year the Greetings has decided to have a special 
department for the Alumnae. Before, it has been any- 
body's business, and as always, what is anybody's business 
is nobody's. We want all the Alumnae to feel that this 

Page Twenty-one 

SC&e College (greeting* 

year they have a personal friend in the Alumnae Editor, 
one who will be down in the front hall to receive them 
when they return to I. W. C. to visit, or to whom they may 
write letters filled with things of personal interest. The 
Greetings wants to fill a long felt want, that of helping 
the girls who have gone from I. W. C. to keep in touch 
with each other. 

Winifred Burmeister, 

Alumnae Editor. 

Announcements of weddings and rumors of others 
make their way to the Greetings office. 

On June 3rd Sarah Hughes and Ralph Otis Aikman 
were married in the Methodist church in Hume, Illinois. 
Greta Coe, '06, was one of the bridal party. 

Gladys Lee Maine on June 20th became the bride of 
Chester Arthur Shafer. The cards read "At Home," Hib- 
bing, Minnesota.

mother and sister are I. W. C. alumnae, with Daisy Coons, 
a former student at the Woman's College. 

On August 5th Lucile Jackson was wedded to Albert 
E. Curry. After a journey in the East they returned to

to Jacksonville to make her home in the pretty bungalow 
being built in Diamond Court.

Alice Farrell Wadsworth, '05, with her sister, Mary 
Wadsworth, and Lillian Davis, former students of I. W. C, 
spent the summer in European travel. They were in 
Brussels when war was declared and, journeying to Paris, 
were there when France declared war; crossing the chan- 
nel, they were in London when Great Britain announced 
that the strength of that great kingdom would be given 
her allies to protect them from German invasion. After 
witnessing the panic and distress attending these moment- 
ous events and experiencing some anxieties, they secured 
passage and a safe journey home. 

We are all interested in what last year's Seniors are 

Hallie Clem, who is teaching Latin and German at 
Virginia, 111., is succeeding very well as can be seen by the 
way she keeps down the unruly boys by taking off thirty 
in their deportment. 

Letta Irwin is teaching German, Algebra and English 
at Hume, 111. 

Mary Watson is staying at home at Sauk Center, Minn., 
taking the home course in Domestic Science this year, 
which she will soon put into use. 

Geneva Upp is using her brain to its utmost capacity 
at La Kota, S. D., teaching Agriculture and other kindred 

Abbie Peavoy, last year's successful editor of the 
Greetings, is trying to instill into the heads of the small 
South Dakotians some of the history of their own pros- 
perous state at Volga. 

Erma Elliott will represent I. W. C. this year at Illinois 
University, where we expect to see her carry off the honors 
in her post graduate work. 

Clara Kelly is teaching Domestic Science at Fredrick 
Town, Missouri.

The Special Seniors are nearly all busy either putting 
their training into practice or going on with their work. 

Helen Jones is giving private lessons in St. Louis. 

Helen Harrison and Freda Fenton are continuing their 
study of music in St. Louis. 

Mary Shastid and Lucile dinger are both going on 
with their work under the direction of the Swarthouts at

Elizabeth Williams and Hazel Hamilton are both stay- 
ing at home this year. 

Mildred Seamen is expecting to return to I. W. C. and 
take up work toward her degree. 

Florence Haller is teaching Domestic Science in her

time she is having. 

Edith Heit is also teaching in her home school at Fort 
Wayne, Ind. 

The advent of a little son, William Lewis, brought joy 
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Fay. The mother, for- 
merly Emily Jane Allen, was a member of the class of 



"Have we got it? Sure we've got it! W r e had it all 
last year and we have it again this. We have only been 
waiting to show it. Our beloved upper classmen gave 
us the opportunity when they put us up as candidates for 
the Mantanzas trip. Realizing how hard it would be for 
any one to decide on the "prettiest , wittiest and best 
loved," we endeavored to put ourselves before the public 
eye in such a way that these particular charms, above 

Page Twenty-five 

Wift College Greeting* 

mentioned, would stand out clearly^ What we think of 
ourselves is self evident and the little inscriptions "I look 
good to me," "I'm a soph," "Shout for me," were merely 
to help those who aren't aware of our excellent qualities. 
We also helped the others to decide by going down to the 
dining room in a body, floating balloons full of pep, in the 
"only" colors, "red and white." We helped make our 
wittiness more evident by singing fitting songs, but our 
beauty and lovable qualities spoke for themselves. Some 
of us fearing our unquestioned qualifications for the 
offices would not be noticed, formed a triple alliance and 
in a strenuous campaign tried to win favor by appearing in 
unusual attire in the dining room and by decorating the 
college with flaring posters. Others brave enough to 
stand alone put convincing posters alongside the "trip- 
lets," in the elevator, front hall, and other conspicuous 

The results of the election were reported at our great 
"sing," each student and faculty member casting their 
votes. From the prettiest, wittiest, and most loved class 
in school were chosen: 

Prettiest — Barbara Weber. 

Wittiest — Mary Harrison. 

Most loved — Marie Louise Whitbeck. 

Hoorah for the upper classmen who appreciate us and 
hoorah for the class with pep. 

A Sophomore.

I love Old October so, 
I can't bear to see her go — 
Seems to me like losin' some 
Old home relative er chum— 
'Pears like sorto* settin' by 
Some old friend 'at sigh by sigh 
Was a-passin' out o' sight 
Into everlastin' night! 
Hickernuts a feller hears 
Rattlin' down is more like tears 
Drappin' on the leaves below— 
I love Old October so!
